Hi Manoun. If you need to move RH onto other PCs you can just uninstall and install as normal. You'll have to register RH on the new PC by entering the supplied product code. You can ring the Adobe Product Registration line if you haven't got this or register over the internet. It's quite straightforward. As far as installing on laptop and PC are concerned, I believe the licence agreement says you can install RH on both but only one copy of the application can be used at any one time (i.e. you can't have a user using RH on both the PC and laptop at the same time). If you read the terms and conditions during the installation (yes I know we never do ) it does state what you can and can't do.
Ultimately only Adobe can give categoric assurances on what is permitted so be aware this is just my understanding.
Each licence is for a specific user so it may have not have been strictly in accordance with the licence having RH installed on a PC that anyone could use. Not sure on that but I wouldn't think Adobe would get too uptight about it as it did restrict use to four people.
Uninstalling RH and putting it onto specific users machines is certainly OK and you do not need to advise Adobe who took over Macromedia.
Also you can install RH on a second PC provided that PC is used by the same person as the first PC.
Admin rights are important so take a look at my site for information about installing RH.
Do not uninstall at the moment as you will not be able to reactivate RH on the new PCs. There is a problem with the activation process and Adobe cannot provide the code, either online or by any other means.
There is a topic in the General Discussion forum. Wait until you see a post there saying that the matter has been resolved.
For the time being do not advise anyone to uninstall and reinstall RH. There is a problem with the activation process and it cannot be circumvented by emailing or phoning. Quite simply, at the moment it is not possible to activate RoboHelp.
We have just been advised that activation is now back up and running. If you want to be safe, try it on one PC first. I have no reason to doubt everything is OK, just suggesting how to protect yourself.
Thank you both
Il will check customer services to be absolutly sure.
